The project begins!
To know how many pieces we need to catalogue and what they all are, the first place to look is the V&A's Central Inventory - the books held in the V&A Archive that list every object acquired in a certain year. Here Rosalind Haddon is checking the volume for 1922, when the Herzfeld Samarra finds were accessioned by the Museum. The total count is 285 objects!
